09:59 AM ET 11.27 | Michael Vick has not played since the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 11. Rookie Nick Foles has been replacing Vick, who suffered a concussion, and the wait for Vick's return could last another week as Andy Reid said Vick has still not been cleared to play. "We have to get him healthy here to see where he's at," Reid said. "He took another test today and he didn't pass it. I'm not going to put him at risk. I'm not going to do that. That's not where we're going with this thing."

"He took another test today and he didn't pass it." Same thing he heard in college.

If spotting a blitz is part of the test, he'll never pass.

I saw Desean Jackson had a mysterious injury too, last night.

He was listed as the backup QB. LOL!!

Hard to recognize the blitz when all 4 of the D-lineman are already in ur face before you can take a 3 step drop! Hard to pin this season on Vick, not sure any QB would have been successful behind that sieve of an O-line

Vick still not cleared

Wouldn't have mattered. Won't matter next week. The Browns might finish with a better record.

Well I guess it wasn't Vick after all........so how's ya boy Nick doin? I guess his little hot **** is feeling the same pressure Vick **** was feeling. You people deserve exactly what you get....the overrated Phillies, the mindless one Bynum, and a whole city of morons rootin on the Eagles, along with the countless mindless ones on this site that couldn't see it wasn't mostly Vick, but on the other hand, all the disaster areas (OL & DL, DB, Andy) of that disaster called the Eagles.

It's definitely not all on Vick. Even when the line gave him some time to throw, he had to play as though they wouldn't. Still, his turnover rate is awe-inspiring.

Foles has the tools, but the rest of the toolbox don't seem to be full.

I think because some have expressed suspicion that Vick's injury was faked as an excuse to get Foles on the field, along with the notion that the first time Foles stunk up a game, Vick would be miraculously healed and return to play. So Foles stunk, and Vick is still injured.

Of course, his injury could still clear up in time for next week's game.
